Star Coins: World 1-4
This is our Star Coin guide for World 1-4 in New Super Mario Brothers Wii. World 1-4 is the first water level and we'll give you some basic hints and tips to remember as you go through. Ice Mario will make this level a lot easier and is needed to get some of the Star Coins.
Hidden Red Loop - Mario will swim past a small island with 2 red pipes coming out the bottom, then a T island, and then a large mass island. Freeze any of the many, many, many fish that are below you and use the icicle fish to get onto the T island. The Red Loop is on the T island. The coins are all in the water so watch out for the many, many, many fish.
Star Coin #1 - The first coin is just above a red pipe right after the Midway Flag. Freeze the red fish up with the Coin to make it easier to get.
Star Coin #2 - As you leave Star Coin #1 you'll pass a Clam with 2 coins inside and immediately come to a Sea Urchin above a ?-block and normal brick. We want to freeze the Sea Urchin as it's leftmost point and use it to jump to the right island mass above the water. Mario will swim past a small island with 2 red pipes coming out the bottom, then a T island, and then a large mass island. You want to get on this large mass island. Walk to the right and drop down onto the second Star Coin. Alternately, but much harder, you can freeze a fish under the Star Coin and ride the fish up to the Coin.
Star Coin #3 - As soon as you venture further from Star Coin #2 you will see the final Coin. Because of the water pressure flowing from the pipes this is not an easy coint to get. You need to Ice the Sea Urchin while it is over the pipe. This will cause the Sea Urchin to rise to the top and break. After a Sea Urchin breaks it free falls. Wait for it to fall over the pipe stopping the flow of bubbles and then swoop in to get the final Star Coin.
